Massachusetts Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III hosted an event Wednesday commemorating the anniversary this week of his grandfather’s presidential bid announcement. On March 16, 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy stood in the Russell Senate Office Building room (now known as the Kennedy Caucus Room) to declare his candidacy; he was assassinated several months later while he was a leading candidate for the nomination.
